Tillandsia bulbose or bulbous is common in Mexico, South and Central America.
The species was described by the German botanist William Hooker in 1825.
Leaves 8-18 cm long, inflorescence is a sparse raceme, consisting of individual spikelets, red or pink. The flowers are about 3 cm long, the petals are dark blue or purple.
Since the plant is covered with a small amount of trichomes, it requires more frequent spraying or bathing. After that, be sure to drain off excess moisture.
